Stanton by Bridge is fine by me.

6.00 start from the Green? As you will recall the last half an hour is all off road (apart from the very last bit in Stanton) and as it isn't a particularly long ride we should be OK without lights. The John Thompson afterwards perhaps?

Mat can you make this?

Khane I can give you a lift back. Stanton is about 2 miles further than Ticknall. Stay on the main road through Ticknall and follow it towards Derby. After a couple of miles turn left at the T junction and the Green is a couple of hundred yards on the left.

I'll put my bike in the car and check the site through the day.

Hello everyone!

I haven't been getting topic reply notification emails since my last post. I thought you had all moved on to the Singletrack forum or something!

I was going to make a comment about the thread getting very dusty with so little use...

Tuesday is tomorrow isn't it...I can't make any promises, short notice. Rob, I'll text if I'm coming.

Must have been when we were in the pub :D

An unexpected treat last night, but this evening was even sunnier.
Trust the presentation went down ok. Good to know the education of our youngsters is safely in your hands.

I think I'll ride to work friday as the cars in for it's MOT. I might take the Kona Sutra if the bloody thing doesn't sell on ebay tomorrow.

These are some images of the torch. The bracket is a handlebar drinks holder but I think it would be better zipped tied to the helmet.

Good rechargeables would make a real difference to run time I think.

My brothers £50 mega light broke down on the first ride! He tracked it down to a loose connection in the battery and has fixed it...
